Is not to Seek Love,

But to Face the Barriers

You have Built
Against it.

Which Cannot be Torn

So that We may
See Ourselves

As We Really Are.

The Queen of the Night

queen of the night 1

And the day came
When the risk to remain

queen cereus flwildflowers

Tight in a bud
Was more painful

Than the risk it took
To blossom.

queen blossoming

~ Anais Nin


The Queen of the Night (Night Blooming Cereus Cactus) blooms only one Midsummer’s night a year. The flower takes around 2 hours to blossom, during which it emits a sweet, calming fragrance to the surrounding area. Not long after reaching full bloom does the flower begins to wilt, and has withered by dawn.
